Multiply (6 cis 300o)(2 cis 30o) and express the answer in rectangular form.

I know how to express this in polar form, but how do I put it into rectangular form?

$$(6 e^{300^{0}i})*(2e^{30^0i})\\~\\ =12e^{330^0i}\\~\\ =12(cos330+isin330)\\~\\ =12(cos30-isin30))\\~\\ =12(\frac{\sqrt3}{2}-i*\frac{1}{2})\\~\\ =6\sqrt3-6i$$

You are very welcome Shades :)

You probably already have a good text book but I found this online.  Maybe it will be helpful.

A quick question, why are we simplifying the angles to 30o instead of 60o? 330o is 600 more than 270o so wouldn't the angles be simplified to 60o?

Thanks Chris . :D

I have answered Shades's  last question  - he must have posted it somewhere else :/
